Hiep Hiep Hoera!

It's New Airport Insider's 4th birthday and I promised not to forget our birthday this year as I had done last year and the year before that (see 2017 Resolutions, second point) It was on 4 October 2013 that we launched New Airport Insider. If you're curious, see our very first article.

Since then, we've written over 60 unique articles on topics like airport wildlife risk management, A-CDM, Brexit, airport talent, people development, growth markets, public private partnerships (PPP) and much more.
